let 用於宣告一個,只作用在當前區塊的變數,可以也可以不用給予它一個初始值。


let var1 [= value1] [, var2 [= value2]] [, ..., varN [= valueN]];


var1, var2, …, varN
value1, value2, …, valueN


let 允許你去宣告只能在目前區塊、階段或表達式中作用的變數,不像 var 關鍵字,它定義了一個全域的變數,或是在整個 function 而不管區塊範圍。

let 的作用區塊

使用 let 在區塊內來定義一個變數。

if (x > y) {
  let gamma = 12.7 + y;
  i = gamma * x;

在使用內部函式時, let 也能夠讓程式碼更加地簡潔。

var list = document.getElementById("list");

for (var i = 1; i <= 5; i++) {
  var item = document.createElement("LI");
  item.appendChild(document.createTextNode("Item " + i));

  let j = i;
  item.onclick = function (ev) {
    console.log("Item " + j + " is clicked.");

The example above works as intended because the five instances of the (anonymous) inner function refer to five different instances of variable j. Note that it does not work as intended if you replace let by var or if you remove the variable j and simply use the variable i in the inner function.

Scoping rules

Variables declared by let have as their scope the block in which they are defined, as well as in any contained sub-blocks . In this way, let works very much like var. The main difference is that the scope of a var variable is the entire enclosing function:

function varTest() {
  var x = 31;
  if (true) {
    var x = 71;  // same variable!
    console.log(x);  // 71
  console.log(x);  // 71

function letTest() {
  let x = 31;
  if (true) {
    let x = 71;  // different variable
    console.log(x);  // 71
  console.log(x);  // 31

在程式裡的最上層,letvar 不同,let 並不會在全域物件中建立變數。

var x = 'global';
let y = 'global';

this.x 的輸出結果將會是「global」,但 this.y 則是 undefined

Temporal dead zone and errors with let

重複在同區塊內宣告相同名稱的函數,將會造成 SyntaxError

if (x) {
  let foo;
  let foo; // SyntaxError thrown.

In ECMAScript 2015, let will hoist the variable to the top of the block. However, referencing the variable in the block before the variable declaration results in a ReferenceError. The variable is in a "temporal dead zone" from the start of the block until the declaration is processed.

function do_something() {
  console.log(foo); // ReferenceError
  let foo = 2;

你可能會在  switch 中遇到錯誤,因為所有的 case 都屬於同樣的區塊中。

switch (x) {
  case 0:
    let foo;
  case 1:
    let foo; // SyntaxError for redeclaration.

let 於 for 迴圈的宣告範圍

You can use the let keyword to bind variables locally in the scope of for loops. This is different from the var keyword in the head of a for loop, which makes the variables visible in the whole function containing the loop.

var i=0;
for ( let i=i ; i < 10 ; i++ ) {

Scoping rules

for (let expr1; expr2; expr3) statement

In this example, expr2, expr3, and statement are enclosed in an implicit block that contains the block local variables declared by let expr1. This is demonstrated in the first loop above.


let vs var

當在區塊中使用,let 限制了變數的作用範圍,注意以下 var 在 function 內外的不同。

var a = 5;
var b = 10;

if (a === 5) {
  let a = 4; // The scope is inside the if-block
  var b = 1; // The scope is inside the function

  console.log(a);  // 4
  console.log(b);  // 1

console.log(a); // 5
console.log(b); // 1

迴圈中的 let

You can use the let keyword to bind variables locally in the scope of loops instead of using a global variable (defined using var) for that.

for (let i = 0; i<10; i++) {
  console.log(i); // 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 ... 9

console.log(i); // i is not defined

Non-standard let extensions

let blocks

let blocks support has been dropped in Gecko 44 (bug 1167029).

The let block provides a way to associate values with variables within the scope of a block, without affecting the values of like-named variables outside the block.


let (var1 [= value1] [, var2 [= value2]] [, ..., varN [= valueN]]) block;


The let block provides local scoping for variables. It works by binding zero or more variables in the lexical scope of a single block of code; otherwise, it is exactly the same as a block statement. Note in particular that the scope of a variable declared inside a let block using var is still the same as if it had been declared outside the let block; such variables still have function scoping. When using the let block syntax, the parentheses following let are required. Failure to include them will result in a syntax error.


var x = 5;
var y = 0;

let (x = x+10, y = 12) {
  console.log(x+y); // 27

console.log(x + y); // 5

The rules for the code block are the same as for any other code block in JavaScript. It may have its own local variables established using the let declarations.

Scoping rules

The scope of variables defined using let is the let block itself, as well as any inner blocks contained inside it, unless those blocks define variables by the same names.

let expressions

let expression support has been dropped in Gecko 41 (bug 1023609).

The let expression lets you establish variables scoped only to a single expression.


let (var1 [= value1] [, var2 [= value2]] [, ..., varN [= valueN]]) expression;


You can use let to establish variables that are scoped only to a single expression:

var a = 5;
let(a = 6) console.log(a); // 6
console.log(a); // 5

Scoping rules

Given a let expression:

let (decls) expr

There is an implicit block created around expr.

Firefox-specific notes

  • Prior to SpiderMonkey 46 (Firefox 46 / Thunderbird 46 / SeaMonkey 2.43), a TypeError was thrown on redeclaration instead of a SyntaxError (bug 1198833).
  • Prior to SpiderMonkey 44 (Firefox 44 / Thunderbird 44 / SeaMonkey 2.41), let was only available to code blocks in HTML wrapped in a <script type="application/javascript;version=1.7"> block (or higher version) and had different semantics.
  • Support in Worker code is hidden behind the dom.workers.latestJSVersion flag (bug 487070). With version free let, this flag is going to be removed in the future (bug 1219523).
  • ES6 compliance for let in SpIderMonkey is tracked in bug 950547
